The [Wednesday] Papers

"A Chicago man has dreams of being stinking rich - and thinks a line of fragrances with the smell of money is just the ticket for combining dollars with scents," AOL reports.

"Patrick McCarthy, a vice president of sales at Microsoft, took a break from his day job to create His Money Cologne and Her Money Eau de Parfum, a line of his-and-hers fragrances that are designed to make the wearer smell like a million bucks - or more, depending on how much you put on."


So that's why Rahm Emanuel is attracting so much support; he stinks.


"3 mayoral hopefuls say they were bullied as a child."

Rahm responds here.


"Three of four candidates confirmed for mayoral forum on environment and community development."

Gee, can you guess which one isn't?


Rahm Calls In Favor From Accused Racist To Shore Up The Black Vote.

County Bounty
"Preckwinkle said she has felt the financial pain, having to slash the number of employees in her office after discovering that former board President Todd Stroger had been spending about $600,000 more in salaries than the budget called for," the Tribune reports.

"Preckwinkle addressed the issue while announcing she had hired former city Comptroller Tariq Malhance, 66, as her new chief financial officer. He will be paid about $176,000 a year, which is $54,000 less than his predecessor, whose salary Stroger boosted after his Democratic primary election loss nearly a year ago."

Can't Stroger be sued - or arrested?

Berrios's Boy
Please see the update on the item about political operative Scott Cisek in yesterday's column.

Local media doesn't care.


But they're totally onto this hot story:

* Packers-Bears Game Will Test "Mixed Marriages"

* Family Divided Over Bears-Packers Game

* Houses Divided: How Suburban Bears Fans Handle Enemies On Own Turf.

Clout vs. Innovation
"A new research space has opened at Innovation Park at Notre Dame that is expected to attract businesses and entrepreneurs," the South Bend Tribune reports.

"The 847-square-foot comprehensive analytical laboratory is equipped with an array of scientific tools to store, handle, prepare and test materials. It's leaseable by the hour or the day to established or startup businesses . . .

"F Cubed LLC, a startup firm based in Innovation Park, was the first client to lease time in the new lab. The company is working to develop a small device that will identify contaminated drinking water and infections in human blood and fluid samples, said Leslie T. Ivie, of Chicago, president of F Cubed.

"'Here in Chicago, there is nothing like Innovation Park,' he said."


Why? Perhaps because clout crowds out innovation.

Hotel Chic
"Fort Pitt Furniture, Chicago's warehouse of used hotel furnishings, has a pretty amazing deal going on right now," Garage Sale Warrior notes.

Pension Fun
"Dick Tracy Comic Strip To Get New Creative Team."

Maybe they oughta have him marry the retiring Brenda Starr. They can move into a retirement home next to the Lockhorns.

Czar of the Playbook
"Zone blitz will kill the Bears' offense, but if Cutler protects the football the defense and special teams will squeeze out a win," Emory Hunt says.

Then again, he picked the Seahawks.


The Beachwood Tip Line: Lock horns.
